How To Make Instant Pot Congee

This Instant Pot congee is an easy rice porridge of Asian origins. The dish is simple but packs a ton of flavor. Serve with your fave toppings.

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 30 mins
Total: 35 mins


  • 1 cup jasmine rice, uncooked
  • 8 cup water
  • fresh ginger, 2 inches, peeled (optional)
  • ¼ tsp. salt


  1. Rinse rice under cool water.
  2. Combine rice, water, ginger, and salt in the bowl of an Instant Pot / pressure. (Note: If using ginger, add the piece of grated ginger whole so that it will infuse the congee with flavor but can be removed at the end of cooking. If you like a more intense ginger flavor, grate the ginger into the congee, but use half as much as listed.)

  3. Close and lock the lid.
  4. Set the pressure cook / manual setting on High for 22 minutes.

  5. Allow the pressure to release naturally. (Note: This is important. Congee is very starchy and, if the pressure is manually released, it may foam and clog the pressure release valve.)
  6. If a whole piece of ginger was added to the congee, remove and discard the ginger.

  7. Unlock the lid. Serve congee warm.
